Ahead on Ozarks, a business degree from the University of Arkansas without ever seeing Old Main or setting foot on senior walk: an online degree is now a reality. Plus, we get an update on updating Cane Hill, one of the oldest communities in the region.

The two candidates in this year's Arkansas governor's race recently discussed their views of what the future holds for the state's Private Option. The future of hog farms in the Buffalo River Watershed may be uncertain with a recently proposed ban on confined animal breeding operations near the national river. And the Fort Smith Fire Department may not have to travel as far for training in the future, if the city board of directors approves construction of a training facility in the city.

Shiloh Museum will give us the story of Essie Ward, an artist from Nubbin Hill.

The last days of spring have almost everything for the curious.  From a science fiction reading to a workshop on rails, we have details on some of the events.

The Yellowjackets are one year older than their newest member, Felix Pastorius.  He talks about joining the band and more.

Ahead on this edition of Ozarks, how the Children's House in Springdale is trying to help some of the most neglected and abused children in two northwest Arkansas counties. Plus, how a public forum tomorrow, also in Springdale, is designed to stimulate children's learning even when school is not in session.

Congressman Tom Cotton and Mark Pryor traded verbal blows late last week as each addressed the Delta Grassroots Caucus, which held its annual meeting in Little Rock. Enrollment in the state's Private Option continued to grow last month, as evidenced by a new report released by the Arkansas Department of Human Services, and the University of Arkansas System moved forward with its future online university programs last week by hiring the school's first three employees.
